Militia group to launch border sweep
Campaign against illegal immigrants raises fears of violence

Friday, September 30, 2005; Posted: 2:51 p.m. EDT (18:51 GMT)

BROWNSVILLE, Texas (Reuters) -- A U.S. militia group will launch a month-long sweep for illegal immigrants along the border with Mexico this weekend, stepping up a campaign that has raised fears of violence.

Volunteers plan to gather at seven sites between San Diego, California, and Brownsville, Texas, throughout October to scour the deserts for illegal immigrants and report them to the U.S. Border Patrol so they can be arrested.

"Our patrols will be held on private ranch land ... Our volunteers have been well-trained and know how to deal with protesters if they do get near us and will report them to local law enforcement," he added.

GROWING OPPOSITION
The growth of the Minuteman patrols has stirred stiff opposition among activists and many residents in towns and cities along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The California-based Brown Berets, a Mexican-American group that was allied with the revolutionary U.S. Black Panther Party in the 1960's, has vowed to confront the Minuteman volunteers during their October vigil.

I truly hope this stays peaceful this is fuel waiting for a spark to ignite.

1. ohhh wow how brave of these guys....
Like I've been saying if these guys really want to make a difference in combating illegal aliens they have do two things:

1. Drive their pickups to businesses owned by middle class Republicans and threaten to or outright turn them into the authorities for hiring illegals because they don't feel like paying a minimum wage to American workers.

2. Cease buying groceries at their local grocery stores as especially in the southerwestern region and NAFTA you will be hard pressed to find produce that hasn't touched "illegal" hands.

Of course the pasty faced cowards whose ancestors of course were Native Americans won't do either of the two will they?
